Gerrard wants Fabio to stay
ENGLAND skipper Steven Gerrard expects there to be changes in the England squad for the Euro 2012 campaign but he has urged Fabio Capello to remain as manager.
The chances of the so called ‘Golden Generation’ to win a major tournament may have ended after England were beaten 4-1 in their World Cup second round match by Germany in Bloemfontein yesterday.
The likes of Gerrard, John Terry, Frank Lampard and Emile Heskey are already over 30 while David James will be 40 in August.
Gerrard said: “Everyone in the dressing room is hurting, the coaching staff and the players.
“Personally I’d like Fabio to stay as I think he’s a fantastic manager but that’s my opinion.”

Capello’s position is bound to come under intense scrutiny only five weeks after having a clause removed from his �6million-a-year deal that would allow either party to terminate after the World Cup.
“I want to speak with the chairman and then decide my future,” said Capello. “I need to know whether the FA have confidence in me or not.”
When asked if he would resign, he replied: “Absolutely not.”
